Let's say you have a small idea for fixing a big problem. You're worried about the number of obese people in this country (30% of adults!), and you want to play a part in solving the problem. You decide to start a weekly cooking class for kids, teaching them about nutrition and how to cook delicious, healthy snacks. Brilliant, right? But how do you execute your idea? You need funding, volunteers, a way to organize events...
PandoProjects is a nonprofit organization that helps Americans to pursue their ideas for making a difference. We provide individuals with the tools they need to successfully execute their project ideas, including mentorship, connections, and a website through which to raise money, attract volunteers, and organize events. By removing the barriers to starting volunteer projects, Pando Projects will promote a revitalized citizenship, enabling and challenging citizens to develop localized solutions to the community problems they consider to be the most important.
PandoProjects will grow to scale, until it supports thousands of projects every year. I want to give people the chance to get off the couch, create projects that address the problems around us, and use the PP tools to actually make those projects a reality.
The target audience for the logo is any American over the age of 18, with the drive and creativity to start their own volunteer project.
Pando is the name of a single colony of aspen in Utah. Pando is one of the biggest living organisms in the world, with all the trees connected by a massive underground root system.
I chose the name PandoProjects because our organization will connect project leaders from all around the United States, encouraging discussion, collaboration, friendship, and debate. After project leaders complete their projects, they will become volunteers for our organization and mentor others who are starting their own initiatives, further facilitating connections.
I need a logo with the word PandoProjects, incorporating the concept of interconnected trees. I'm not going to put any other restrictions on the concept... I'm just hopeful that you guys will come up with something good! Ideally, the concept of the logo will flow into the concept of the website.
Thank you for your help!
